Looking to volunteer this holiday season? Many emergency food providers host a holiday meal around Thanksgiving, Christmas or even both. For most, this is the largest meal that they will serve this year and they need volunteers. Below, find a list of some food providers that need food donations or volunteer help for their holidays meals and food distribution. Please check back often, as new opportunities will be added. Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help end hunger this holiday season!
***NOTE*** Please CONTACT the food provider ahead of time to ensure that the site is still in need of volunteers or food donations. It is important to coordinate with the site contact. Thank you!
